Jetpack Social: Connecting to Social Networks

Automatically share your blog posts to your Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Mastodon, Nextdoor, and Instagram Business accounts by connecting them to your site via Jetpack Social. This auto-sharing feature was previously known as Publicize.

How to connect your social networks to Jetpack Social

You can connect your site to Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Nextdoor, Mastodon, or Instagram Business by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your Dashboard, and from the My Sites menu item at the top of the page, select the Jetpack-connected site where you want to connect your social media accounts. You may need to click on ‘Switch Sites’ to find the site you want to manage Jetpack Social on.
  2. Navigate to Tools → Marketing → Connections.
  3. Click Connect next to the Social Network you want to connect to.
  4. Log in to that Social Network site and authorize the connection. Specific guidance for each social network can be found at the links below:

Enable the global connection for your social networks on Jetpack Social

After you add a new connection, you have the option to make the connection “global,” meaning it can also be used by any other user on your site who has the proper user permissions to publish posts.

To make the connection available to all users, check the box labeled Connection available to all administrators, editors, and authors:

Note: Making a connection global only allows other users to share their posts to the social network. They do not have access to do anything else such as getting access to the social network account directly.
